I have never really felt the urge to see how far I have run because my only aim when I started this programme was to be a bit fitter. In my heart of hearts I thought that I would last a few weeks (if that) and then revert back to being that potato I loved so much ( the couch one). 🥔🥔🍟🍟
I bought my first ever pair of proper running shoes 👟👟 about 3 weeks ago and will hopefully graduate next week. I've never missed a week even though my inner demons have tried to convince me on more than one occasion to not bother. My diet has changed for the better (Last night for tea I had home made thai green sea bass with quinoea rice and roasted veg🥕🥕
I look forward to my runs 🏃♂️🏃♂️ and it's not easy for an old fatty like me but the great feeling at the end is fantastic and dare I say better than doughnuts 🍩🍩 (let's not go that far lol)
So thankyou for all of that C25K I tip my cap to you🙋♂️
And thankyou to all of you who have encouraged me, made me laugh and generally been interested in my journey. You are my heroes 👷♀️🤴💏🙏 and I would never have done it without you!
So back to today and my first ever mapped and timed run. In 28 minutes I ran 4.01km and it said 21metre elevation (whatever that means) with a best split (third km) of 6.43
So there you have it. Looks like I'll need 35 mins to do 5k till I get fitter and stronger but I'm really happy with that 😁😁😁.
Good luck with all of your runs this week
Remember if I can do it anyone can
Right I'm off for a bowl of porridge 🥣
